Yankees pitcher Adam Warren roughed up in minor league start
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:22 pm ET) Yankees pitcher Adam Warren is still hoping for a shot at the starting rotation this season. He didn't help his case Tuesday, allowing five runs on nine hits in four innings of work against minor league hitters. 

"The results weren't the best, but I'm just trying to get ready for the season," Warren said to ESPN.com. "It's tough out here to get the adrenaline going, so you try to lock it in, work on some things. That’s really what I try to focus on, getting ready for the season."

Warren is still having difficulty with the transition from reliever to starter.

"Sometimes you feel like you let off the pedal a little bit because you're like, you've got to go multiple innings, and sometimes you catch yourself pulling off a little bit," Warren said. "But I feel like I'm better if I'm bringing everything I’ve got for as long as I can. So I’ve got to constantly remind myself to go out there with a bullpen mentality, just as a starter."


Pirates pitcher Vance Worley allows one run in outing Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:18 pm ET) Pirates pitcher Vance Worley went three innings Tuesday against the Tigers, allowing one run on three hits with one strikeout.

Worley, who is expected to begin the season in the bullpen, was happy with his performance, according to MLB.com.

"I felt good. It's a tough lineup. I didn't want to leave anything over the plate," Worley said. "I've been hit pretty hard by them in the past. I wasn't trying to leave anything over the white. I wanted to make some good pitches to make them swing."


Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco expected to return Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:01 pm ET) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco missed Tuesday's game with a cramp in his left quadriceps suffered in a game over the weekend, but is hoping to play Wednesday, reports MLB.com.

"I'm optimistically thinking that he'll be ready to play tomorrow," manager Bryan Price said Tuesday morning. "[What I don't want to do with injured players] is to put them in there and find out they can't go, or shouldn't go."

Mesoraco is hitting .214 with two home runs and four RBI in 11 spring training games.


Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman leaves with undisclosed injury
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:53 pm ET) Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman was removed from Tuesday's game with an undisclosed injury after manager Bryan Price and a trainer came to the mound to check him out, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Chapman, who looked like he wanted to stay in the game, pitched to just one batter and did not allow a hit in his brief outing.


Brian Flynn will have tough time making Royals' staff
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:52 pm ET) Royals pitcher Brian Flynn will have a tough time making the Major League roster, according to a report by the Kansas City Star.

Flynn had a 1.50 ERA in nine games this spring, and manager Ned Yost said he was one of the best pitchers in camp. However, the Royals would risk losing either Ryan Madson or Louis Coleman if they sent either of those pitchers down. Flynn still has options available. 


Ryan Madson has opt-out with Royals but would consider AAA
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:48 pm ET) Ryan Madson confirmed to the Kansas City Star that he had a "gentleman's opt-out" clause in his contract with the Royals that would allow him to field offers from other teams, if the Royals try to send him down.

Madson said that he'd be willing to accept a demotion to Triple-A Omaha, if no other team offers him a Major League roster spot.


Yankees catcher Austin Romine still unsure of role
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:47 pm ET) Yankees backup catcher Austin Romine still doesn't know where he will be when the season begins, reports NJ.com.

Romine, who is battling with John Ryan Murphy for the backup role at catcher, is hitting a low .143 in 28 plate appearances this spring.

It's hard for Romine to not think about what will happen.

"Being a human, you're going to think about it," he continued. "It is your career, it's your future, stuff like that. So best I can do is go out there and show them I can catch."

With four games left, Romine will continue to try to perform at the highest level.

"I'm just playing. I'm playing to make this team, but I'm also playing for the teams out there," Romine said. "But I want nothing more than to make it on this team. That's my goal."


Yost: 'High probability' Franklin Morales makes Royals' roster
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:45 pm ET) Royals manager Ned Yost said there was a "high probability" that pitcher Franklin Morales will make the team's Opening Day roster, per the Kansas City Star

Morales was signed as a free agent on February 19. He went 2-0 this spring with a 7.20 ERA. Yost said that Morales still needs to be added to the team's 40-man roster.


Joe Blanton accepts assignment to Royals' Triple-A affiliate
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:40 pm ET) Royals RHP Joe Blanton agreed to accept an assignment to Triple-A Omaha. Blanton signed a minor league contract with the team on February 13 and was invited to camp as a non-roster player. 

Blanton was 1-0 with a 2.79 ERA in three games this spring. 


Report: Blue Jays' Roberto Osuna, Miguel Castro earn spot on roster
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:39 pm ET) Blue Jays pitchers Roberto Osuna and Miguel Castro have both made the Opening Day roster, according to the National Post.

Osuna and Castro were both competing for spots on the pitching staff and the team is unsure if they will go with 7 or 8 in the bullpen, according to the report.

Osuna posted a 2-0 record with a 0.82 ERA in seven spring training appearances while Castro posted a 1.64 ERA with 10 strikeouts and no walks this spring.
